Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass says he’s met with Pride Toronto’s executive director in the wake of his social media post that supported anti-LGBTQ2S-plus boycotts.
Bass made a public apology last week and explained he had a really good conversation with Sherwin Modeste during a recent meeting at Rogers Centre and says he’s in a better place moving forward.
Bass explained that Modeste was glad for the apology and informed him about the Pride community and a lot of the good things they’re doing to spread awareness and make people feel comfortable.
Modeste has also commented on the conversation saying their meeting was a good second step but not the end of the journey.
Anthony Bass was booed by the home crowd last week in his first game appearance since making a brief pre-game statement and apology on May 30th, a day after his offensive Instagram post.
